Doctor Who: 10 - blue smirk look

(no subject)

:: shakes head ::

Got a book that I requested... "The Art of Deception" written by Kevin Mitnick, who is a hacker who gained access to computer systems of some of the largest companies out there. He talks about this sorta thing from both points of view (attacker and victim) however focuses more on the biggest security risk of all -- i.e. human nature. Rather interesting twist of things....since normally books talk about computer security from a technical point of view, rarily do they focus on the biggest fault of things like the human nature....most focus on the software used and what should be improved in the software to prevent computer hackers and etc..... this one's different.. already my IACT teacher is interested in reading the book.... eh-heh... oh well......

(see how exciting my day was?! :P I'm writing about a BOOK)
